About Us

The story so far…

Glowcroft Contract Packing was established in 1990 by Steve Tarrant. Focusing initially on packaging products for the horticultural industry, which was Steve’s area of expertise. Opportunities to specialise in packing for other industries soon materialised and with it, the company began to grow.

Jayne Tarrant joined the company in 2000, adding marketing expertise and further business management knowledge.

The company relocated from Gloucester to Needham Market in Suffolk in 2001. In 2004 Glowcroft increased its working space to 42,000 square feet.

Glowcroft has seen  steady growth, and now includes a dedicated in-house design team. They can design everything from a simple business card to a total company rebrand and of course, as you would expect excel at packaging design.

Our focused management team work seamlessly alongside our ever-growing production team. This links well with our continuous investment plan in machinery and technology, as we consistently pack over 9 million packs a year for over 100 brands.

Our commitment is to quality and excellence in all areas of our operation. The variety of packaging formats that we utilise is almost endless. We will freely advise you on practical packaging solutions based on over 25 years of industry experience.

We have built relationships with many leading industry suppliers who assist us in sourcing a large range of packaging formats and options. This in turn allows us to  offer our clients a dedicated sourcing and supply service.
